This grouping gathers together all versions of the "Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes" album, originally released in 2011.

"Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes" is the seventh studio album by the American punk rock band Social Distortion, released on January 18, 2011. It is the band's first album recorded with bassist Brent Harding, their first album of new material since 2004's "Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll", and their first release on Epitaph Records. Work on the album began in 2006 and it was originally forecast for a 2007 release, but was pushed back several times while the band continued touring and writing new material. After four years of writing, Social Distortion recorded the album from February to July 2010 at Ocean Studios in Burbank, California. Drummer Atom Willard left the group during the recording sessions in favor of his other band, Angels & Airwaves. He was temporarily replaced by Scott Reeder before David Hidalgo, Jr. joined as the band's new permanent drummer. Despite being listed as a band member on the album, Hidalgo did not actually play on it; instead, the band hired session musician Josh Freese to record the drum tracks.

Such an underrated album! Not a great pressing. Pretty dark. Small amount of pitch variance. Right channel heavy.

My version of this doesn't have a CD either, and both discs are orange vinyl, and there are 2 posters with it, one is the Machine Gun Blues poster, and it also has a double sided poster of the band. The hype sticker says "Includes 2 bonus tracks and poster + ltd ed colored vinyl". Any insight would be appreciated

Alright, I've got a brown marbled with some faint white streaks on both records, does anyone else have this or know the pressing amount. Side note: it has a sticker on the shrink wrap that says 'TRANS BROWN'. Any insight would help. Thanks.
